    Mendenhall will start vs. The Ravens

    From Rotoworld.com:


    Isaac Redman said Thursday that it "looks like" Rashard Mendenhall (Achilles) will start versus the Ravens Sunday night.
    It's hardly a surprise considering RBs coach Kirby Wilson confirmed a week ago that Mendenhall would remain the starter once he's cleared for game action.
    The Steeler way...is the only way.

    Looks like Mendenhall will get the start vs the Ratbirds

    Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that Steelers running back Isaac Redman said it “looks likeRashard Mendenhall will start at tailback.

    This is a nice problem to have right now, 3 fairly healthy RB's on the roster, but now we're back to that, who should really get the starting job question again.LOL.

    With Ben out though, I'll take any available playmaker we can get. Mendy starts, Dwyer SHOULD back him up.

    Besides running, and catching, other thing to consider is Mendy is very good picking up the blitz and don't think for one minute the Rats won't send people early and often.

    I might be in the minority, but I still maintain that Mendy is the best RB on this team (when healthy).

    You're definitely not alone.

    When Mendy came back he had a good game. He's the guy until he proves he can't handle it. Dwyer better be backing him up and playing a significant role too though.

    All 3 of these guys aren't going to be back next year so everyone is making their bid for more playing time now and in the future.

    Mendy is by far the most naturally talented of the group. Dwyer is a stud, but he is not even close to Mendy in the "athletic freak" category. I like both a lot, and I am very excited to see them rotate the work load and pound the Rats!

    I dont have a problem going with Mendy either. He looked great in the Eagles game he played in and he should be fresh and ready to go and hopefully he will have a big game. Im with a lot of people as well when they say Dwyer should be backing him up and seeing a lot of carries as well on Sunday...

    I hope it's more like Mendy is the "starter" and they split the carries fairly evenly.
